I have a RW8 project with about 200 total pages, of which about 100 have personell bios including Card stacks (from Elixir Graphics) with a photo and contact info. These bio pages are organized in 3 different sections of the project.
Last week suddenly about 90% of the pictures from the Cards stacks in just one of those sections vanished. In a few cases the images remain, and in a few the right-side stack inspector shows a thumbnail image in the Image section but the Card still just shows a blue sunrise image. Every blue-sunrise Card stack, when published, shows a broken link in a web browser. I opened an earlier version of the project and when I copy the old version of the Card stack with a good image from the old project into the new project, the Card stack which had been missing an image usually has the image suddenly reappear.
I’ve contacted Elixir Graphics about this and they say it’s either a Stacks or RW issue, but neither YourHead or Realmac have responded to my support request.
Does anyone have any suggestions how I can sort this out? As I work on manually restoring the images where they are missing they (sometimes) after a time disappear again.
Montage 2 does not work with Stacks version 4. Well, existing deployments will continue to work as normal, but once you upgrade to Stacks 4 you can not add any more images to the stack or create a new instance of the stack.
We did not upgrade the stack to work in stacks 4 as it would have forced everyone to re-create all their existing deployments, we withdrew the stack from sale.
